Volunteer! Stay Involved.
There are dozens of ways to be involved as a parent, guardian, or grandparent at King; this is just a sampling. Nothing models leadership qualities for our children better than seeing US be leaders!
Room Parents – 6th Grade Only
Way easier than being a room parent in elementary school! Help plan a community-building welcome dinner for your class – with tons of support and guidance from experienced parents plus a PTA sponsored caterer!
Sixth Grade Homeroom classes have Room Parents who support teachers with field trips, in-class parent participation, communications, and community building among 6th grade families. It is vital that each homeroom have at least one dedicated room parent (co-room parents are fine!) to help make the kids’ first year at King a happy and memorable one. Contact Jackie Murillo if you are interested in becoming a room parent or getting involved in supporting the 6th grade community. Jackie and the team of 6th grade room parents will be sharing ways to connect during the time of distance learning.

Food is at the heart of King’s efforts to build community and show thanks to our teachers and staff. The Hospitality Team coordinates food for school events and staff appreciation meals. Parent volunteers and the Hospitality PTA members can always use help at events to set-up, decorate, serve, and cleanup. For staff appreciation meals, the PTA usually purchases main dishes, with sides dishes and desserts donated by parents. The hospitality team is finding ways to support and show appreciation for teachers and staff from a distance. If you’d like to get involved, contact Patrick Hamill or Kelly Marston.

Fundraising is an absolutely critical component of our school’s success and can only flourish with the help of our community members. Our two biggest fundraising efforts are the Friends of King campaign and the spring Run-A-Thon. If you would like to help with the Friends of King campaign or the annual Run-A-Thon, contact PTA presidents.
Coaching, Team Parents, & Classes – Teams and classes need parent support – be a coach, a driver, a snack or logistics provider, a teacher, or helper!
